morning, charlie and norah. the white house meeting yesterday between president obama and speaker boehner occurred after the president extended that invitation to boehner quite quietly on friday. after the meeting, both were described as hopeful. even so, a followup meeting between white house staff and republican congressional staff on underlying details of a fiscal cliff deal apparently achieved little progress. the president met with boehner after huddling friday with house minority leader nancy pelosi and telephoning senate majority leader harry reid. both democrats wanted to make sure president obama will not freeze them out of fiscal cliff negotiations. far from frozen, some set of republicans appear to be warming to higher tax rates on households earning more than $250,000. if and only if that leads to benefit cuts in health care entitlements like medicare and medicaid. >> give the president the 2% increase that he's talking about, the right increase on the top 2%, and all of a sudden, the shift goes back to entitlements. >> but house republicans, the key to any fiscal cliff deals

the fiscal cliff is here. president obama and house speaker johnboehner had a meeting at the white house. the president and the speaker refused to speak about details of the meeting there is some republicans are now putting increased pressure our party leaders to rethink opposition to tax hikes on the wealthy and taken get entitlement cuts in return. many house republicans refused support the tax hike under any circumstances. and democrats have been skeptical about rushing through anti reforms before the end of the year. >> same-sex couples cannot officially tied the knot in washington state. >> yesterday marked the first day that those couples are able to legally marry. >> 30 or more than 140 people registered to marry in seattle city hall. seattle's mayor is calling it a great and joyous day with a new civil-rights been recognized. >> watching lost t wall street from three major indexes are in the negative in this morning pre-market trading. the looming fiscal cliff is likely to affect this week's trading since washington has yet to make a build for the cliff. investors will also be wa

that president obama doesn't do regularly. and that is take a lot of questions from the white house press corp. that is where you get stronger and better answers, sometimes deeper answers to questions that america deserves to know. not -- the problem for president obama is that who he talked to yesterday is a narrow slice of the audience. more people know about that now than would have ever seen it on that other network. he needs broaden out and talk to and try to persuade people that are not just on the left. >> brian: you remember you invited charles charles and other conservatives before he actually took office? >> remember, they were charmed and they said, huh, maybe this is going to go better than we thought. and then they were bitterly disappointed. >> steve: let's talk a little bit about this. the congressman from in texas, steve forbes out yesterday talking about look, we've got to do something about taxes. the president is even talking a little bit about it. we need a flat tax rather than raising taxes. here is a little snippet of congressman gilbert. listen. >> when you hear fair sha

are serious about pulling a repeat of 2011, obama can't ignore them. since it will wreck immediate havoc on the economy. white house wants at the very least a long-term extension of the debt ceiling in any fiscal cliff deal. the republicans now see the debt ceiling as their own leverage. they're demanding a steep price to include it. who anyways if obama will ultimately go along with something like this. but it is a talk that there is still one crucial way he's at the mercy of republicans. it leaves him with a tough choice. to pay their price in entitlements or play debt ceiling chicken with them again. okay. does it for "the cycle" today.
the white house out there, you know, publicly putting pressure on republicans by sending obama, for example, to michigan but gamt trying to negotiate behind the scenes with boehner. and it's a two-prong strategy that i think carries real risk. >> it's kind of negotiation 101. i mean, the most basic kind of negotiation, you know, don't show your hand if you don't have to. i'm wondering, matt, is part of this psychological, even real in terms of momentum, democrats feel they have the upper hand and so they don't need to do anything right now. >> can we just take a moment and recognize it's december 10th, december 11th and people are out on the road making politics about this and occasionally meeting and talking about maybe exchanging ideas? this is kind of a big deal, you know? in this same way that passing a buck -- we were told that for a long time. >> for a long time. if there was any kind of seriousness of purpose, and i'm not pointing out either party, you know, one over the other but neither is having a seriousness of purpose about passing budget, about sitting down and talking about th
this could be challenging for president obama, but at this point in time they're really looking at all the options and basically making the case reminding people that, look, this is still illegal under federal law. craig. >> what were the white house's options here, kristen? >> reporter: they have a couple options. one might be taking legal action against low-level offenders and then trying to make the case that ultimately federal law trumps state law. another option might be going straight at the state level and basically saying they don't have authority to regulation taxes and other initiatives when it comes to marijuana. craig. >> we look ahead to the president's inauguration next month. politico tweeting a few hours ago that president obama will accept unlimited corporate donations for his inauguration in january. that's a departure from four years ago. what's behind the change? >> reporter: it is a departure. the white house weighed in as well. we're not taking money from super-pacs or anything like that, but they don't want to tap back into their donors. they feel their donors ar

was in the proposals? >> we're getting details in drips and drabs. the white house has offered according to a source telling cnn to basically revise their revenue target. p president obama originally proposed $1.6 trillion in new revenue. he wants to raise the tax rates on the wealthiest americans. now we're being told that he's revised that number down to $1.4 trillion. that's obviously a difference of $200 billion. a democratic aide also telling cnn, i'll read the quote, that offer was coupled with a serious spending cut number with real entitlement reform. so that's from the white house side. on the counterproposal from the republicans, we don't have a lot of details on that, but from boehner's office, republicans are basically awaiting spending cut specifics from the white house. meanwhile, as this goes on, you can imagine that lawmakers here in washington are still sniping as you mentioned publicly. take a listen at the latest from john boehner. >> if the president doesn't agree with our approach, he's got an obligation to put forward a plan that can pass both chambers of the congress. because

against this. it was interesting because president obama was in michigan the day before, or yesterday, i forget -- and he was talking with how important it would be to veto this particular new law. there has been no response from the white house with regard to some of the violence that happened yesterday. what do you make of it? >> i was surprised that president obama got so deeply involved with one speech on monday. you're right, it was this week. but governor snyder is it a -- is a very mild mannered person. he's a self-made man, he's doing public service because he wants to help improve michigan. i have no doubt that his intentions are to help bring jobs back to michigan. the violence is not in keeping with what -- i don't think what any of us would expect at an american protest. they have a right to protest. i think the least that anybody could do is to say, we don't want any violence of any sort. we condemn the violence. the statements about foreign policy out at the state department are more i guess strict or admonishing than what you got from the white house about this, which was
